The profile of the mean flow
Figure 7 The internal gravity wave in the shear flow. The wave forcing frequency is 0.393(s-1) (T=16.0 sec). There is no critical level in the mean flow. The rightward flow weakens the leftward wave, so only the rightward wave propagates to the deeper area. A single frame is two seconds.
